JETSAM DAY SPECIAL

The Story of Spectre
By Banishedwarrior

When Spectre the Jetsam
Was just a little kid,
He ate everything and anything,
Yes, that is what he did.

Nothing was inedible,
Everything was a snack,
And if you were wearing a tasty-looking shirt,
You better have watched your back!

But one fine fall day that all changed,
When he had a craving for some gold,
Then chancing upon a game of Cheat,
He saw the trophy worth riches untold,

"I'll win that match," he told himself,
"And eat the prize right after!"
With a sly grin on his face,
He set out to do the disaster.

He pulled up a chair with a calm poker face,
And grabbed his cards in his hand,
Using tricks and cheats of every sort,
He beat every master in the land.

With looks of utter amazement I'm sure,
They humbly acknowledged their fall,
But as they handed the sparkling trophy to him,
He did something that shocked all:

*CHOMP!*

And still to this day if you go to a match,
Spectre will be clutching some cards in his claws,
With a look of hunger in his bright-red eyes,
And a shred of gold in his jaws.

Forever At Our Shores
By Happy_2_help

Jetsam, with razored teeth
Sharper than Jhudora's tongue,
Who proudly fears no one.
Jetsam, with fierce eyes,
That stare into the very soul of your enemies.
Jetsam, with fins like blades,
To cut through the waves of the great oceans.
Jetsam who can be accused of being too bold,
But fake you are not, no lie will cross your lips,
Your heart is on your sleeve.

And so you will stalk the waves,
With razored teeth, fierce eyes and bladed fins,
Forever at our shores.

Spectre Outdone
By Numbertwelve

Red eyes fixate upon your face,
Carefully watching your every move.
It is said that he can smell your fear,
And so you hide it deep inside.

"Three nines," you proclaim,
Not a quiver in your tone.
It is truth that you have spoken,
So Spectre takes you at your word,
And all the others leave you alone.

Four cards remain for you to play,
While six are held in Spectre's fin,
"Four kings," he mutters and it is truth,
And though he now holds but two cards,
You know this game is yours to win.

Your other opponents make their moves,
And Spectre calls them both for cheating,
You choose to ignore the rest,
Let Spectre be distracted,
Whilst you give him a beating.

"Four twos!" you shout -- your hand is empty,
"Cheat!" Spectre cries; you must obey,
And show your cards for all to see.
And so you turn them, one by one,
Until there, upon the table, four twos are laid.

A Jetsam's Home
By Oearmuffso

Deep in the ocean, past Maraqua I live,
I swim with great delight,
My strong fins push the water past,
When lost I have no fright.

I cannot drown, I have sharp teeth,
In others I bring fear,
Cry and scream and flee they will,
Whenever I draw near.

I'm fast and swift, you cannot run,
And hiding is no good,
When questioning if you should flee,
The answer is you should.

My penetrating eyes can stare
Through waters dark and black,
Large deep caves become my home,
For sleep I'll never lack.

I am a Jetsam, strong and fierce,
For land I'll never strive,
In all the oceans far and wide,
I'm home, and I'm alive.

Ode to Spectre
By SillyJillyPrincess

I met a Jetsam who likes to Cheat.
When it comes to cards he can't be beat.
Playing against this Jetsam is to know defeat.

I met a Jetsam who likes to Cheat.
He's the toughest player on any street.
A better card player you'll never meet.

I know a Jetsam who likes to Cheat.
If he's hungry he'll have a Petpet to eat.
If he asks about his tattoo
You'd best say it looks neat.

I met a Jetsam who likes to Cheat.
A pet's best move is
To leave the cards and retreat.
If he joins the table, you'd best give-up your seat.

I met a Jetsam who likes to Cheat.
He holds his hands with fins
Instead of hands or feet.
But there's no doubt in cards he's one of the elite.

I met a Jetsam who likes to Cheat.
When he sees a new player,
He says, "Fresh Meat,"
And that's what he considers a friendly greet.

I met a Jetsam who likes to Cheat.
Catching lying players is his favorite treat.
Following his dazzling card play
Can be quite the feat.

I met a Jetsam who likes to Cheat.
No matter your card play
He'll treat you with conceit.
But unless you can beat him
Your trophies won't be complete.
